Technical Recruiter - Contract

| Chicago

 

Our recruiting teams build Groupon’s greatest asset; our employees. Recruiters at Groupon play a deeply consultative role with business leaders. They make a real impact in the business by ensuring that people are matched to roles and teams which enable them to be great, and by protecting the quality of character that joins the company. Are you the kind of recruiter who is passionate about developing relationships, learning more about state of the art tech, and helping others find the right fit? Then we want to talk.

 

At Groupon, we spend our days developing tools that help small businesses thrive in their local communities. We’re a technology company building products that positively impact the lives of the 48MM people and 100,000 merchants that use them every single day. With thousands of employees across 16 countries, we operate at a global scale but still maintain a culture that inspires innovation, rewards risk-taking, and celebrates successes.

 

We are looking for a full–cycle technical recruiter with experience sourcing and maintaining a strong pipeline of engineering talent. Partnering with hiring teams locally and beyond, our tech recruiting function builds teams which sit at the intersection of local and mobile, fueling a commerce platform that continues to evolve. Ultimately, you'll contribute to our overall business growth by finding and engaging with some of the best tech talent in the world.

 

Core Responsibilities

  • Source, screen, interview, negotiate with and hire top technical talent

  • Partner with hiring teams to ensure that hires match by more than the immediate needs of the particular team or candidate

  • Champion an amazing candidate experience

  • Champion an equally amazing process within hiring teams, including thorough interview debriefs and process re-calibration when necessary

  • Articulate our business, mission and values in ways that resonate with each particular contact, presenting an objective view of life at Groupon

Qualifications

  • BS/BA preferred

  • 5+ years in-house technical recruiting experience in a rapidly changing environment

  • Detailed track record of delivery and partnering with multiple hiring managers concurrently

  • Ability to speak comfortably to basic tech stack architecture, front-end and back-end engineering profiles as well as testing roles

  • Experience sourcing candidates through social media beyond LinkedIn. AIRS certification and/or advanced web recruiting skills (complex search string savvy) preferred

Groupon provides a global marketplace where people can buy just about anything, anywhere, anytime. We’re enabling real-time commerce across an expanding range of categories including local businesses, travel destinations, consumer products, and live or lively events. At the same time, we are providing advertising options and tools that merchants can use to grow and manage their businesses. Culturally, we believe that great people make great companies and that starting with the customer and working backward moves us forward. Community matters to us on an internal, local and global scale—it’s fundamental to our company’s growth and to the well-being of the world at large. We also value self-awareness, candor, lunch and WiFi. If we match with you, please apply to join us.

Insider's spotlight

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Groupon provides an environment where I can strive for maximum work-life effectiveness, room for growth, and there is always something new to do. I enjoy spending lots of time at work because I love what I do; the hours are not burdensome, Groupon fits me. I define success in my own terms & Groupon provides us with the flexibility to be successful.

Senior Manager of Operations

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

We are working on arriving at the optimal attribution models across different areas of our business. For example, the attribution of a purchase to a specific experience — a home page feature, an email, a push notification — likely has a different window of time where we can reasonably say a specific purchase is a result of a specific experience.

Kristi

Data Scientist

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Here at Groupon, what you do matters. I got my start at Groupon as an intern and have had the opportunity in the past (almost) 5 years to build out a global volunteer program that has engaged over 5,000 employees in over 63,000 hours of service supporting the work of close to 650 nonprofit organizations.

Recently, we committed to having 100% of our job descriptions reviewed for gender balance by the end of 2018. Also for 2018, work will continue with our Employee Resource Groups, who play a pivotal part in the attraction and selection of diverse top talent, and themselves can be developed and promoted into company leaders.
